Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School has formally instituted a required academic program for full-time and part-time students as of the 2001 entering first year class. All courses must be taken according to this prescribed course of study. No changes to a student’s course of study shall be instituted unless written permission is given by the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs. The Associate Dean will review the academic progress of each Upper Division student annually, and plan the student’s academic program through their anticipated date of graduation. Upper division students may select elective courses, as indicated on their Academic Planning Worksheet. Required courses must be taken as offered, when offered. Please refer to the AJMLS Academic Code and Dean’s Office Regulations for specific academic policies with regard to registration.
